Headwear is part of your signature style. How important is having a personal style for you?

Very important! But there are also days I don’t attach great importance to it. On those days I would wear garments that don’t fit together but that doesn’t bother me. But when I purposely want to dress up, I am very eager of what I’m wearing. Also of having a personal style.

 

Do you have any specific style role models?

I’m especially inspired by the ’80s; Biggie, Léon: The Professional, Samuel L. Jackson. But mostly Biggie.
